    smoke effect for the aerial perspective ..o yeah, it worked great at that time, I recall the revelation I got when sitting in the big cinema screen and that environment popping up on the screen together with the music, the flames etc, spectacular at that time and it really felt like you were witnessing something real, but futuristic at the same time.

    If I were to do it digitally, I would probably not use volumetric global, but use primitive item though since that is easier to controll and also have absorbtion unlike the global scattering.
    Eevee realtime fog could be nice also, may throw in some buildings and try.

    Great article. Good find, and thanks for sharing. A few years ago, I saw a piece of the original Tyrell building miniature used for one shot - where the camera dollies in close to the exterior and comes to rest on a window where there was a small rear-projection screen built into the model. The projection was of the room, with ceiling fans rotating, and the interviewer for Leon was standing. It was pretty amazing seeing it in person.

    I thought you loved me, (in a friendly way)

    1965, meh...the cool stuff was between1977-1986, and at that time I was a 13 year old kid and later just a youth brat that was able to enjoy it properly as well.
    And there was also abba to dance to, but a bit earlier

    I recall after seeing superman and starwars and alien, blade runner, I wantéd to be a " scenograph" artist, making miniatures and sets ..and I really loved the Crypton set, so unique..and still to this day I favour it over the modern look in later movies.
    At that time..entering such education was lengthy and riscy...and I would probably not be working with that kind of style here in Sweden anyway.

    yep, exactly what i mean... was tricky to join the cinema with A New Hope at the age of.... 1.



    I wantéd to be a " scenograph" artist,
    would've been Sooo Awesome!
    even cooler that a 3D artist i think.

    -------

    just adding... there Are a few (albeit Very few) practical FX houses in both Norway and Sweden.

    I think It´s to late to apply for production design/props, at least for my age, and the amount of work there is for it.

    1 year? yeah..I forgot your almost a kid still
    For me though, it was great to be in that era, I recall coming home from the first star wars movie in 1977, on the bus my imagination went wild and all I could see in front of me was spaceships and lasers.
    For Alien, I was maybe 14 years old, and I couldn´t see it the first round, but I got to see it right after anyway, they were up on the big screen a lot longer in those days...but I could also not wait to find out what it was about, so
    I bought a full Alien comic magazine, and almost everything was there, so I knew the chestburster would come out..it sort of spoiled it a bit though, and in fact, in the magazine it looked way worse than what happened in the movie.

    I also made a facehugger in clay at school, and my teacher was mighty impressed, got the highest grade in art..wish I had managed that direction better, but at those times, in sweden..it was more important to just get a job, so I got hooked as industrial worker for 6 years my very first years.

    I still have some plans for doing some artwork in clay though, and combine with 3D printing, but that I have mentioned already.

    But wait, before star wars, there was star trek ..got me some of those dolls, but more interesting at that time, space 1999, got me a model ship of that as well...funny how it was translated to moonbase alpha in swedish.

    gonna stop you right there,... it is never too late.

    ok, i'm gonna go with the never word again....
    never tell your parents you wanna be an artist !

    star trek
    strange, i don't think that ever aired here, not until the 90's... go figure...
    edit; found it, Star Trek first aired in Norway in 1996 !

    I can't remember who had them, but one day on "5th Element" someone drug out some left over, original nurnie & greeble kits made for "Blade Runner". I doubt very much that you could spot them in the NYC buildings, but that's where they got used.

    you know, growing up, i never really though about having...

    1 TV channel (state)
    1 Tele company (state)
    1 place people bought Liquor (state)
    1 Hospital (state)

    Norway was never a communist state,... but damn, so close.

    We got the original battlestar galactica here over in Sweden in the 70s.
    My brother and I got some of those ship models as well and glued them together.

    Personally I liked the space 1999 models though, despite it´s simplicity, and I also prefered space 1999 over star trek or galactica at that time.
    That was tv shows, then came star wars and Alien bringing it to another new level.

    Norway, the last Sovjet state according to an old swedish Minister of Trade and Industry, since then he was also made fun of a lot in the history of media, guess he was dissapointed in some trade deals or something like that.

    But no, neither Sweden or Norway have been or is anywhere close to a communist state, or socialistic states, socialistic governements and politics is a bit different than the actual state.
    I´m really Baffled over the scare tactics introduced to americans during the election, and some really seem to fall for it, but enough of that, politics are banned.

    still, there was some truth to it for sure.
